Turkey to manufacture railway cars for Iraq

TUVASAS, an affiliate company of Turkish State Railways (TCDD), will manufacture railway cars for Iraqi State Railways.

Ibrahim Ertiryaki, the Director General of TUVASAS, told A.A correspondent on Thursday that TUVASAS was the first and only factory of Turkey that manufactured passenger railway cars.

Ertiryaki said TUVASAS annually produced 65 railway cars and had the capacity to repair 500 wagons.

Referring to the agreement signed with Bulgaria regarding passenger railway car manufacturing, Ertiryaki said, "we will deliver 30 sleeping cars to Bulgarian Railways in 18 months. The project has a total cost of 32.2 million euro. This agreement is also important for Turkey because passengers will travel with the railway cars of TUVASAS in an EU member country."

"TUVASAS will also produce railway cars for Iraqi State Railways," he said.
